The families of a woman and three children who drowned when a van rolled into a Bridgeport, Conn., pond in 2007 have settled a lawsuit against the dealership that sold the van.
The van was parked at Beardsley Park on July 4, 2007, when it began rolling down a hill. Michelle McIntosh, 39, ran after the van but couldn’t stop it and drowned, as did the children inside the van. An investigation determined one of the children had shifted the transmission into drive.
All sides agreed to keep terms of the settlement with the Loman Auto Group of Woodbridge, N.J., confidential, an attorney for McIntosh’s family, William Bloss, told the Connecticut Post.
